Whitley County Lady Colonels looking to reload for this season

WILLIAMSBURG, Ky. (WYMT) - Last year the Whitley County Lady Colonels went 25-7 overall and made it to the 13th Region semifinals.

As for this year, the Lady Colonels lost a solid chunk from last year's team and are under new leadership.

But the players and new staff hope to reload rather than rebuild.

"We lost 75-percent of our offense from last year, but some of the girls like the sophomores are coming up and helping us and it's just everyone working together which is really what we are trying to focus on," said Kaelie Frazier.

"We've just rotated people in different positions and have been seeing what everyone is comfortable with," said MacKenzie Smith.

"We've conditioned a lot and tried to get closer so that we can communicate better on the floor," said Hannah Petrey.

"Just worked together, coming together at practice and give 110-percent and not holding back," said Sarah Bolton.

"I think our biggest goal is that we want to make the region tournament, with so many newcomers that we have and so many new faces, new staff, and new offenses if we get to that region tournament that would be outstanding," said Whitley County Girls' basketball head coach David Halcomb. "Goal for me, I would like to win 20 games, of course, we would like to win the District, that is going to be a challenge but we all think that those are goals that if we work hard and play together as a team that we can make those happen."
